Burkhart Faculty Fellowship

Lorene Burkhart, the founding donor of the Center for Families, is passionately committed to family well-being. In particular, Dr. Burkhart is committed to the families that are disadvantaged or underrepresented, particularly evolving family forms that are poorly understood.

Burkhart Faculty Fellows focus primarily on emerging family issues. All topics in this area receive serious consideration; topics of particular interest include healthy family functioning; evolving family forms; and family disparities in educational, employment, or community settings.

Supported by the Lorene Burkhart Fund.
